“I was at the stadium with my brother, Okocha was playing for Frankfurt he had the ball facing Oliver Khan, when he started dribbling, I put my hands on my head and I was saying if you miss this goal, everyone was in awe, even players stopped moving and when he scored I buried my head in tears. I could not hold it.”

It is in record that both brothers wore the Nigerian green and white jersey during their international call up in 1994 before Emmanuel was dropped.

Emmanuel further described Jay Jay as an exceptional footballer who went all out to achieve his goals.
